Oxygen is released from plants on land and plankton in the sea during photosynthesis. The oxygen is lighter than air and floats upward in the atmosphere.
At the km region, strong ultraviolet radiation in the nanometer wavelength bombards the oxygen and turns some of it into ozone.
The ozone created exists as a thin layer in the atmosphere and it blocks out the small portion of the UV spectrum that it absorbs.
The great majority of the UV reaches the earth allowing suntanning, which Dr. We hear a great deal about the thinning of the ozone layer in the media, but the facts are otherwise. Ozone production in the upper atmosphere is dependent on the amount of energy coming from the sun.
During peaks of solar activity, ozone is created at a greater rate. During lulls in the sunspot cycle, the ozone layer is thinner. The lowest level ever measured was in At night, on the dark side of the planet, the ozone layer disappears, in a few hours. The layer is reformed as the sun rises in the morning.
There is no ozone over the poles in the winter because there is no sunlight. Ozone is produced constantly in the upper atmosphere as long as the sun is shining, and since ozone is heavier than air, it begins to fall earthward.
If ozone contacts water vapor as it falls, it forms hydrogen peroxide, a component of rainwater, and the reason why rainwater causes plants to grow better than irrigation.
Ozone is also created by lightning, and the amount produced in an average storm is often triple the allowable limit of. This ozone is what gives the air the wonderful fresh smell after a rain, and is of the highest benefit to anyone fortunate enough to be breathing it.
Ozone is also created by waterfalls and crashing surf, which accounts for the energetic feeling and calm experienced near these sites.
Another way ozone is produced is by photons from the sun breaking apart nitrous oxide, a pollutant formed by the combustion of hydrocarbons in the internal combustion engine. This ozone can accumulate in smog due to temperature inversions and is a lung and eye irritant.
These are the forms of ozone created by natural processes in the atmosphere.
There is evidence of the use of ozone as a disinfectant frommentioned by Dr. Kellogg in his book on diphtheria.
Kenworth, MD, detailing the use of ozone for therapeutic purposes. In Septemberthe electrical genius Nikola Tesla patented his first ozone generator, and inhe formed the Tesla Ozone Company. Tesla sold ozone machines to doctors for medical use, the same thing we are doing years later, with a design based on one of his from the s.Analyzing the effects of varying hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) concentrations on the volume of its drop Jonah Jemina IB Chemistry SL 11 Mr.
Eastwood Analyzing the effects of varying hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) concentrations on the volume of its drop Jonah Jemina Introduction: Hydrogen peroxide is a clear and colourless substance that has a strong oxidizing characteristic.
The effect of catalase concentration on the breakdown rate of h2o2 The effect of catalase concentrations on the rate of Break down of hydrogen peroxide Scientific knowledge and understanding: A rate is a measure of change that occurs in a given time whilst a reaction is the interaction of substances undergoing chemical change.

One of the more difficult projects was the effect on H. Pylori since it is an anaerobe (doesn't like oxygen) so we had to culture in a CO2 environment. Introduction We hope this page will eventually contain all the known data about the SU-8 photoresist. Thus, we need your help! Send all your data number , and I will include it in this page, with credits, of course!
The SU-8 is a negative, epoxy-type, near-UV photoresist based on EPON SU-8 epoxy resin (from Shell Chemical) that has been originally developed, and patented (US Patent No.
